The opinion of Aventure Nordique
The Bright as Day 1800 from the Norwegian brand Moonlight is a compact and powerful lamp that can be used as a headlamp, helmet lamp or bicycle handlebar lamp. With its 2 LEDs, it can provide an intensity of 1800 lumens for an hour and a half. The single button allows you to switch from one power level to the other, and to the two flashing modes, slow or fast.
- 100% power: 1800 ml, autonomy: 1.5 hours
- 50 % of the power: 900 ml, autonomy: 3 hours
- 25 % of the power: 450 ml, autonomy: 7 hours
- 5 % of the power: 130 ml, autonomy: 43 hours
The remaining battery level is indicated by a light that changes colour, continuous blue: 50 to 80 %, continuous red: 30 to 50 % and flashing red: 0 to 30 %. At 10%, the LEDs flash and switch to the lowest power level.
The 2-cell li-ion battery has a capacity of 6400 mAh to ensure a long battery life. It can either be connected directly to the lamp and attached to the headband, or it can be remote using the supplied extension cable. This keeps the battery warm in a pocket for winter use. The cables are aimed at each other to prevent disconnection.
The Bright as Day 1800 is compatible with GoPro accessories and uses the QuickClip mounting system. Moonlight offers a headband (included) and bike and helmet mounts (sold separately). In order to be able to use it in all weather conditions, the lamp has an IP67 protection rating.
